Episode 12: The next disruptive technology – blockchain
Blockchain – the next disruptive technology. Kari talks with Chainfrog’s Keir Finlow-Bates and Kimmo Rouhiainen about blockchain. How the technology works, where it is today and what are we going to see next. The world-wide mystery of Satoshi Nakamoto is also on the table and the coolest blockchain pilots. What are the implications when there’s no need for centralized authority. What’s the current situation of Bitcoin and what challenges have arisen.
Chainfrog is the first blockchain company in Finland. They have five patents pending in the US, and they have a solution for making the technology more environmentally friendly. Chainfrog helps other companies utilize blockchain with lectures, workshops and consulting. Their productized path shortens the time to take blockchain in use. And of course, there’s the story behind their catchy name.
